    Don’t you know how much love
    We have for all of you.
    And that we are right here beside you
    Only to you we show our soft side

    It is a mental struggle, and I feel it to
    This brick house is our home
    And here is where we come
    To rejuvenate with love and care
    To prepare for the next battle
    In this capitalism atmosphere

    We fight on difference battleground
    For the same meaning and causes
    Some call us
    Father Mother, Sisters, Brothers,
    Some call us
    Teachers, preachers, community leaders
    Other is
    Uncles, Aunts, Grandparents our elders.
    Kings, Queens, Generals, Soldiers.
    We are all warriors.

    In this concrete jungle where we roam
    Fighting for independence, our heritage.
    Trapped in a country
    that is govern in one cause only
    to break us…demean us
    To turn us, against us.

    We got to stay alive, and be wise
    To many of the young are crying and dying.
    If we must die, then the message
    Got to be sent.
    Warrior in training
    Future Kings and Queen to be.
    Take off where we left off.
    View our words carefully.

    It is all about our RACE.
    Yes I am being blunt
    They fear us.
    And hope to gain our trust

    And that is where we have failed
    It is part of our nature to care
    So you got to stay focus
    On our RACE
    In order
    To over come
    Our own HATE

    All the family and friends
    Who had die on the battleground?
    On the streets, in the March
    From the chemical warfare
    Of drugs
    From the guns the capitalist
    Put in our hood.
    From the beat down
    In the man in blue
    FROM US KILLING US!
    I cry out loud.


    We are here in this country
    By force only.
    And when ever we take a step
    To over come our bondage
    They slip right in,
    With more poison

    To them it is a game
    To us it is our life
    As the wheels are turning
    We are becoming mentally free
    As the wheels are turning
    We are living, learning and healing.
    As the wheels turns
    We are out witting the injustice
    Of there poison.

    We live for YOU!

    Take care on the path you travel
    Be careful and ask many questions
    Listen carefully to the answer.

    We all fight on difference field of battle
    For the same meaning, and objective.
    Empowerment: For our people, our RACE.
    Trust in us.
    Peace, and much love.:heart:

    indeed our fight
    is meaningful
    we cast out in cry
    to live not to die
    weave in the box
    four corners of
    str8 struggle
    the cause is worthy
    forth many before us
    laid , drip blood , and
    stood in the line of fire
    passing it on was the
    greatest desire so here
    we are again from every
    hamlet of hope
    we are in the same struggle
    different wars may the sons
    and daugthers of the great
    great ancestors be past to
    them to continue the fight
    truely some day we all will win
    da true freedom the same power
    the best of life the great spirit of
    dead it's mental war we are cast
    stop the controller
    stop the killing
    stop the drugs
    stop the misunderstanding
    stop the cross war on each other
    stop the cry
    start the empowerment
    start the bonding
    start the loving of others and self
    start the hope dat dream
    start the rise of the call
    start it .......shhh! listen
    hear the knowledge forth given
    hear the wisdom spoken
    hear the ancestors weep as they turn
    hear the struggle
    know ya directional path
    work it , feel it , and do it
    in the middle we all shall meet in VICTORY !

    let not my eyes close and giveth self da continue power
    of ya might hand to let me fight and feed the word u so giveth
    and be of thy glory of hope & reason ....i stand in this fire
    and i shall not burn but rise and reach as many hearts my mission
    is my war in the struggle.

    Thank u sistah bluewater for this powerful piece......

    Sister Bluewater,
    I can't begin to tell you how much this piece touched me today
    I mentor a group of minority college students who where having
    conflict amidst each other...and I had to remind them where
    the battle really is....it's not between each other, there is a whole
    world out there we need to change...and entire campus that doesn't
    even know the definition of "diversity"

    Thank you for this Bluewater,....I would love to read this to them
    this message is what they really need to here......our youth today don't
    realize the war, is not over.

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,!


    oh, and Rich....your words were the the highlight of it all!
